Celebrating outstanding volunteers for seniors The Government of Alberta is recognizing nine individuals and organizations for making a difference in the lives of Alberta seniors and their communities. thumbnail

For more than 20 years, the Minister’s Seniors Service Awards have recognized volunteers and groups that dedicate their time and talents to make life better for Alberta seniors.

The recipients of the Alice Modin award will also be recognized. Thirty years ago, Modin campaigned to launch a seniors’ day in Strathcona County, paving the way for a provincewide Seniors’ Week. The Alice Modin Award was created in her name, to honour a senior who has contributed long-term service to their community.

Oct. 1 is recognized as Day of Older Persons in Alberta. The province also celebrated this day by raising an International Day of Older Persons flag at the Edmonton Federal Building.

“These outstanding volunteers reflect Alberta’s values of hard work, dedication and always being willing to lend a helping hand. Day of Older Persons in Alberta is the perfect occasion to recognize and congratulate our 2019 award recipients and thank you for your many years of service to our cherished seniors.”
